religions care about. it's not about christians or non-christians or democrats or republicans. it's about doing the right thing for those who need help the most. joining me now are joe madison and bill press. thank you both for being here. so joe, now instead of asking what would jesus do, they're asking what would jesus cut when it comes to the safety net. >> i don't know how to begin except to tell you it's not only in reference to christianity, but i don't think there's a religion on the planet that would do what would be considered the gospel according to what, bill o'reilly? the dwos pell means good news. good news for the rich, bad news for the poor. >> one of the things that kind of got me is he went way out there last night. he repeated another right wing smear against the poor. listen to this. >> some of the people who don't have enough to eat, it's their fault they don't have enough to eat. you're asking people who may be struggling themselves to put food on the table to give their tax money to you, and then you're not even going to buy food with it. you're going to buy booze an

didn't say nothing about religion. there's a woman in there. he beat those ministers. it's chilling how good he is. can he bring it back? can he bring back the love? >> well, you know -- >> i think it's there, myself. >> if obama had lost and if that could in some way have been blamed on the clintons even if he got the nomination and lost because they were insufficiently supported or something like that, i think there would be some lingering feelings. but he won. and he won again. and there's no reason to hold a grudge, i think. >> i like to be the sunshine guy around here, joy as you know. not going to be debbie downer in this world. i think one good thing is going to come out of this administration. it's going to be a mixed bag so far. it's been tough and he's done some great things. like health care. and i think the thing with encouraging equality of people with different orientation. women, a third of the supreme court are now women. stock market, if you're rich through the roof, you have a 401(k) through the roof. a lot of these are good. but i noticed this administration, the way

of catholic charities, the charity work that our religion and other religions, it's a common goal to help poor and sick people. most of the religious in our countries today run hospitals, orphanages. and the idea that we have too much inequality out there, saying capitalism is okay, being rich is fine, but you have to focus on the people that don't have a piece of the action. it's not like he was running the creed here at all. >> he was talking about the idolatry of money, which i thought was a wonderful line. he talked about the globalization of indifference. this is what you want with the whole world catholic or not. somebody that gets them to think about fundamental issues and that returns them to the kinds of things that jesus did say, you know, according to catholicism. so this is at the heart of modern ultra conservatism as represented be rush limbaugh. he said that the real evil is indifference as you just said so well. we'll be right back after this. >>> let me finish tonight with this, peek always ask me who i . for aveeno® positively radiant face moisturizer.

who haven't made it in this country. >> yeah. there's no great religion that doesn't speak to this. at root, every great religion has some equivalent of the golden rule, some equivalent of the idea that i am my brother's keeper and my sister's keeper. some notion that even as we each take individual responsibility for acting in a responsible and righteous way, part of our obligation is to the larger world. and to future generations. you know, i think pope francis is showing himself to be just an extraordinarily thoughtful and soulful messenger of peace and justice. i haven't had a chance to meet him yet. but everything that i've read, everything that i've seen from him indicates the degree to which he is trying to remind us of those core obligations. and as i said in my speech yesterday, we live in a economy that is the greatest generator of wealth in history. we're risk takers, we're entrepreneurs, and we're rugged individuals. that's part of what makes us great. that's why we continue to be a magnet for strivers from all around the world. they think i'm not going to be held back

passedol eed legislation in 187 recognizing its judeo christian religion. >> there was nothing judeo about congress making it law, but in the heat of war, sometimes you say things you don't mean. >> everything was swell until ten years ago when creeping secularism and groups like the aclu began attacking the christmas holiday. they demanded the word christmas be removed from advertising and public displays, and many people caved into that. now we have the happy holidays syndrome. >> obviously, cowering in fear of general o'reilly, the aclu says, in recent years, culturally conservative commentators have declared there is a so-called war on christmas and in many cases have claimed the aclu is leading the charge. this simply isn't true. religious freedom is part of the right guaranteed to us all. while christmas displays are placed in front of homes and places across the country and while carolers go door to door, they say christmas is being removed from all public mention. the constitutional rights allow people to preach, sing, and celebrate christmas in their churches and with family and f

americans at a time when we're in the season of advent for one of the three religions of our country, christianity. it's a time for us to try to give and help rather than to push aside and shun. >> well, even if we don't want to ascribe to the season, banks got bailed out. and i didn't hear this kind of reaction from leading republicans. but, you know, e.j., paul wrote in the "new york times" today about republicans and the unemployment benefits and i'm quoting from his article. he wrote in his column, the gop answer to the long-term unemployment is to increase the pain of the long-term unemployed. cut off their benefits and they'll go out and find jobs. how exactly will they find jobs when there are three times as many job seekers as job vacanci vacancies? details, details. little details get in the way of that argument, e.j. >> indeed, they do. i think krugman is right. people are acting as if the unemployment rate is no longer a problem. because it's lower than it used to be. and it is lower than it used to be, but it's 7%. that's a lot of unemployed americans. under president cli

in south africa today. millions of people, regardless of their race, color, or religion, unified in prayer, song, and remembrance in honor of nelson mandela. today's national day of prayer and reflection marks the beginning of a week-long program of mourning in his memory. let's go right now to nbc's michelle koh zin ski, who's in the middle of it all. michelle, a good evening your time. what are we seeing? >> reporter: hi, alex. right here this was a fence lined with some flowers outside the mandela property. now it has become several large hills full of flowers lined with people. you can imagine in churches around the world today mandela was mentioned. here today people were basically encouraged to do their own thing, to reflect on the melgszage of this champion of freedom. but in enormous numbers, people felt much better gathering together, includingmembers of mandela's family. it had the feeling of a sunday revival. here a few hundred gathered in a tent at mandela's offices, anything but quietly reflective, full of joy. >> we don't mourn quiet. we need to celebrate. we need to celebrat

of the parliamentarians, they religion against their to actually have a nuclear weapon. it's not like there hasn't been a debate within iran itself in regards to nuclear weapons program. it's not like all of iranians have said they want to move forward with nuclear weapons. they have been divided with their own society. they have that constant debate themselves. i think the iranian people made a choice when they decided to elect a more moderate president this time than they had previously. and so part of the voices of the tonian people are starting stare up also. they want to -- my hope is, and we will see whether or not they abide by the agreement and move forward, but my hope is that they would want to be a part of the international community. they cannot be part of the international community if in fact they have a nuclear weapon. as i said, it is important that russia and china has a stake in is also because here are individual countries who previously had not had a stake in this. important for them to have this p5+1 come together. if iran really wants to get back to the international committee, th
